The young parents and their children living at Dove Cott House have been painting a Lion King / African inspired mural to brighten up their communal lounge. The idea for the mural started when one of the residents suggested they paint a tree and use the children’s handprints as leaves as a way of commemorating the young families who all live in Foyer.

The initial idea for a mural was expanded into a Lion King / African style landscape by Joanne Chubb, Young Person Coach who is an artist outside of work. Joanne’s work is usually on a much smaller scale although she has previously created murals but hasn’t worked on anything of this scale before.

Every resident is involved in painting a piece of the mural which, they hope, will be finished by mid-August. Once it is finished they are planning an African inspired party to celebrate!
